Reason #3,906 to support the Sequester: DHS to see major budget cuts

According to the Heritage Foundation, the Budget Sequester “cuts the DHS off at the knees.”

They say it like that’s a bad thing.

… the DHS will be hit hard if the sequestration is allowed to proceed as planned. Some of the areas highlighted are:

• The TSA would have to furlough front-line screening personnel at airports, likely causing significant delays at major airports throughout the U.S.

• The Coast Guard would have to reduce air and surface operations by 25 percent, put off maintenance of its aging fleet, and delay moving into its new headquarters.

• Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) would need to downsize its workforces of both CBP officers and Border Patrol Agents.

• The Department’s Science and Technology Directorate would be forced to cut major projects entirely, including research on protecting the U.S. electrical grid, and drastically slash others.

• Funding to the National Cybersecurity Protection System would be significantly reduced.
Hey! I’ve got an idea!

    If DHS can’t pay for the ammo they’ve ordered maybe then we’ll be able to buy it cheap

    Instead of cutting border patrol and coast guard they cut funds for buying up mega rounds of ammo that could be used against us?

    Funny that no one at the IRS is getting furloughed. Shitstain is full of it and we all know it.
